Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-American and all-conference honors last season with defensive totals of 83 tackles/6 interceptions/9 pass breakups and an average of 9.7 yards on 21 returns with one score. Junior totals included 74 tackles and one interception.
Positives: Small but productive safety with a versatile game. Effectively reads and diagnoses the action, takes good angles to the play and shows great quickness. Possesses a good head for the ball, voluntarily defends the run and has an explosive burst to the action. Displays good ball skills and has good hands for interceptions. Terrific punt returner who sets up blocks and follows them everywhere on the field.
Negatives: Inefficient. Not overly aggressive and gathers into tackles. Does more hitting rather than wrap-up tackling.
Analysis: Coston is an underrated prospect with the ability to make an NFL roster as an eighth defensive back/special teams player.
